Overwhelming LED show in Amsterdam ArenA makes Amsterdam Music Festival a great success

For the second time in a row, the LEDs of InventDesign were chosen for the two-day Amsterdam Music Festival during the Amsterdam Dance Event. We built a grid of digital LED profiles with a total length of over 1500 meters. Due to the vast potential of the digital LEDs, the light operators of the different DJ's created an overwhelming show.

Composition of the LED installation

The LED installation, with a dimension of over 55 by 21 meters, consisted of 1,500 meters of digital M18 LED profiles that we developed ourselves. Each square in the grid consisted of 2.1 meter straight profiles and diagonal profiles of 2.81 meters, all of which are specifically tailored for AMF. Because of the long lengths of the diagonals, the installation was built slim and the audience only saw tight and connected lines. In order to control all the pixels, 16 DiGidot C4 controllers were used and linked through by means of an ethernet connection. Because of the perfect preparation, the entire system was build up and ready to use in only 12 hours.

The stage design was created by 250K. Because of our custom-made products the designers of the stage didn’t have to compromise in their design and could create an overwhelming show.
